Attention Deficit Disorder in Valley Village, CA


You love your children and they love you right back. They do a thousand little things that swell your heart with pride. They are kind. They are generous. They are wise.  All the same, they avoid doing class work, they have trouble sustaining attention, and they struggle to follow through on instructions. You worry they may be a little slow, then one day the teacher or school psychologist contacts you with educational concerns; you have your child evaluated and you learn he or she has Attention Deficit Disorder – the quiet kind, the hidden kind, the inattentive kind.

A diagnosis of ADD can be frightening for any family. The good news is that it is easily treated. There’s no need to let a diagnosis of ADD stand in the way of your child’s full, happy, and productive life. With the type of neurofeedback we offer at FamilyTime Center you can actually train away much if not all of the symptoms, and according to American Academy of Pediatrics you can expect the same degree of symptom relief as with Ritalin, Adderall or Strattera.

ADD is a complex and challenging condition, affecting every individual and each family unit differently – many children with ADD have a parent of sibling with a similar diagnosis. That’s why FamilyTime Center takes a completely personalized approach to ADD treatment, using every appropriate tool available to help families in Valley Village, Studio City, North Hollywood and Sherman Oaks learn to better meet the challenges of Attention Deficit Disorder and enjoy quality of family life that you imagine for yourself when you elected to start your family.

 

The Attention You Need - the Care You Deserve

FamilyTime Center works with families of individuals diagnosed with ADD to develop effective strategies for overcoming their greatest challenges and for building strong, positive relationships. As our clients, you and your family will benefit from FamilyTime Center's understanding of your needs, the depth of our commitment to you and the variety of innovative treatment options we can put on the table, including: BrainPaint® neurofeedback training, cognitive behavior therapy and psychoeducational family therapy.

The AAP in its official journal stated that cognitive behavioral therapy was also a Step 1 for ADD/ADHD. In January of 2014 The Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics published a study highlighting the remarkable benefits of providing neurofeedback training to children with ADHD. The researchers found that neurofeedback made greater improvements in ADHD symptoms compared to both control and CBT conditions.  Even so, imagine what wonders they might work in combination. Should it prove medically necessary, it’s reassuring to know that your clinician is a trained psychotherapist.
Keeping a family together can be a challenge. Sometimes, as parents we need to intervene; sometimes we need to get out of the way; and, sometimes – especially when change is in the air – we really don’t know what to do. FamilyTime Center helps its parents by offering free group psychoeducational parenting classes when a family member is receiving neural therapy.

Not only shouldn’t ADD define loved ones, they shouldn’t have to suffer from it at all. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with ADD, come to FamilyTime Center of Valley Village to learn more about ADD treatment. Call today to schedule an appointment.
